For your safety, stay behind the fence
The return trip on Monday was a bit more interesting. The 9:30 high speed ferry was cancelled due to the high winds and seas. Uh oh - looks like the trip back will be worse than the trip over... The next high-speed ferry is at 12:30. Good thing I checked back a bit early as that one was cancelled as well. But, the regular ferry was leaving at noon for its 2-hour crossing. Now I'm really nervous - it sounds like the seas will be worse and we'll be on them for twice as long. Not much I can do but hope for the best and we get on board. I get a seat inside as close to the center of the boat as possible thinking that the rocking will be less and by being inside she might be more inclined to lie down. Turns out the trip back went fine - she did end up lying down for most of it and there wasn't much rocking either.
Details on the Wine Festival will follow.
